Coin of the Year time

The nominating panel for the Coin of the Year Awards meets next month here in Iola, Wis. It will review submissions of 2008-dated coins for consideration for the awards that will be given at the World Money Fair in January 2010 in Berlin, Germany.

Anyone can make a nomination in any form, but to be truly useful to the panel, please try to include an image if you can and as much of the descriptive information as possible: denomination, weight, composition, diameter, etc.

But first, help us to assemble the list of choices.

Send in your nominations.
